If you think that any of these things won't happen to you, just give yourself a few years, then you'll tell me I was right on money.

1- Forgetting your cellphone in a cab, in a washing machine or in a restaurant. Aww and you didn't get to pay adieu!

2- Watching Hanna Montana Forever just 'cause your kid won't change the channel.

3- Listening to Michael Jackson's Bad album for a month. Or may be the car stereo is broken and you're too lazy to fix it.

4- A friend or a lover will betray your trust and after listening to Evanescence and hundreds of sad songs, you will realise that you've got to change.

5- Wear leather pants and feel as if you're on the next Rolling Stone cover page.

6- Have a half bad hair day with one side looking good and the other is untamable. You will spend hours trying to fix it with various hair products, but it just won't yield.

7- Spending a whole day in the kitchen, having to cook for seven people and burning the main dish. Thank God for takeaways!

8- Your big gang of friends will actually shrink down to two or three that you're probably too busy to call.

9- You will hear the phrase you've lost weight a lot lately. I don't know if to either feel flattered or offended.

10- You will try to squeeze yourself in your old college jeans and after a couple of times trying, you will eventually donate it to charity.

11- You will get sick of your job at some point, even if you love your job and get good pay, unless you run your own business.

12- You'll burn yourself while cooking, no matter how careful. It's kinda like a must-have kitchen tattoo.

13- You will encounter social climbers and annoying people at some point of your life. Stay away, observe and make as many pranks as possible.

14- You will have 15 credit cards in your purse. Sometimes you will split the price of a Steve Madden pumps on 8 cards. God help the cashier.

15- You'll join the gym, attend one class and spend the rest of the month bragging about it, but not attending.

16- One day you'll wake up feeling like what the hell is that pale ghost doing in my mirror? Don't worry, no one can see this but you.

17- You'll thrash your laptop keyboard just 'cause it's too slow opening the site you typed. And then you will spend the rest of the evening weeping over the broken laptop.

18- Spilling hot coffee over your favourite shirt before heading to work, despite reminding yourself not to.

19- People telling you how young you look after knowing your age and you actually do believe them.

20- Spending five hours straight watching Friends or youtube videos on your laptop.

21- You'll cook a really bad dish and strangely enough you'll enjoy eating it.

22- You'll hide chocolate bars under your undies in the last drawer. Just don't ask why!

23- Waiting two hours at a doctor's clinic, but when you're up,
they'd tell you they had an emergency.

24- Playing Angry Birds for three hours in a row.

25- Drive a car without a license.

26- Go shopping, even if you have the flu. Blowing up extra cash can't take a rain check.

27- Missing certain days before it even ends.

28- Some days you'll hit on yourself in the mirror. That's not cocky, that's good self-esteem.

29- Sometimes the internet can be very brutal that it could get you to cry after reading some info about yourself that you wished you never knew.

30- Sometimes you're urged to eat your tummy's worst enemy kind of food when invited at your in-laws.

I really, really can do without the first one happening to me.

Didn't like the story mainly because it is a copy and clearly only pointed towards Americans. And even whoever wrote it hasn't even listed things I would or could relate to.
